worldwide. The partners must pass very specific requirements to produce oils that Young Living will accept.

All partner operations are monitored and audited.  All incoming oils are tested before they are approved and become part of Young Living’s inventory.

If a particular oil fails to meet the Young Living standard, the oil is rejected and returned. Our Seed to Seal process is the foundation of our business and is strictly adhered to.

 

Young Living produces more than 50,000 kilos of essential oil a year.

Discovering New Essential Oil Sources

I’ve made eight expeditions into the Amazon jungle in Ecuador alone looking for plants, and so far I’ve found 42 plants in Ecuador that have not been identified that I’ve distilled oil from.

I’ve made three expeditions into Peru looking for plants and have now collected six plants in the Peruvian jungle that have not been identified. 

Young Living controls all the steps of oil production from seed to seal. I have invested 33 years in the research and development of essential oils. Young Living has my 28 years in the development and discovery of the essential oils plus my 24 years in farming, distillation, and analytical evaluation of the study of essential oils. 

Next week I will give you a list of the essential oils that Young Living farms produce.

Gary Goes Where It Grows!

Gary was here to study Ethiopian Boswellia papyrifera.

It has been said that Gary goes where it grows, where no other person would venture! That’s why we know that what Young Living has cannot be questioned. 

I know Ethiopian papyrifera. How do I know? Who took that picture? Well, I’m not sure, it might have been John Whetten because he was with me, and we were both taking pictures. But I have stood on that spot viewing this particular frankincense species.

Then I went into the forbidden zone of central Yemen and was told that I was the first foreigner to go in there in 40 years. I toured the Homhil Plateau of Socotra Island, home of seven species of frankincense trees that grow nowhere else in the world. Socotra island is where our sweet myrrh is coming from now. Why? Because I went there twice to find it and make arrangements with the people for gathering and shipping it. Here is a photo of me with guides viewing a myrrh tree in Yemen.

I followed the frankincense trail beginning in the Al-Hasik Mountains of Oman, searching for Boswellia sacra, Sacred Frankincense, all the way through Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Israel.

In the interior of Yemen researching areas where the myrrh tree can be found. The best myrrh was located on Socotra Island, where Young Living’s Sweet Myrrh comes from.

The Importance of Testing

The first lot of eucalyptus blue met Gary’s standard. The other lot was extremely lacking in eucalyptol and was therefore rejected.

The first lot of eucalyptus blue met Gary’s standard. The other lot was extremely lacking in eucalyptol and was therefore rejected.

Here are some examples of essential oils and common adulterating agents: peppermint (cornmint, ethyl vanillin), rose (palmarosa, citronella, synthetic fractions), sandalwood (amyris, araucaria, diluted with glyceryl acetate, benzyl benzoate), ylang ylang (Peru balsam), clary sage (synthetic linalyl acetate, linaool), and geranium (palmarosa, citronella, synthetic compounds). All of these agents can be found during testing—IF your company does testing!

This is from a letter that was sent to me.  “Dear Sir, I’m a French exporter who exports products from Provence to North America. I select very typical products which quality is unquestionable. I’d like to know if you would be interested in Provencal products like lavender essential oil made in France–50 percent lavender, 50 percent lavandin, 100 percent pure.” Pure lavender oil that is 50 percent lavandin? That’s not my idea of pure!

I get these letters all the time. Synthetic or adulterated oils. Mislabeled. Diluted. Adulteration can occur at any point in any production process.

I will show you two lots of eucalyptus blue, one accepted and one rejected. Why was the one rejected? Because the compounds did not meet my standard.
